Liberty Bank Foundation

We keep the community in mind with everything we do. Not just with the products and services we offer, but in the ways we give back.


All of our grantmaking is done through the Liberty Bank Foundation, established in 1997 as an extension of Liberty Bank’s commitment to our communities. We feel that, as bankers, we have a responsibility not only to provide excellent financial products and services, but also to make our communities better places to live and work.

Through our Foundation, we support nonprofit organizations that our neighbors depend on to build strong families and communities.

Review our Grant Guidelines to determine if your program is a fit within our priority areas. Then call us at 860-638-2961 to discuss your proposal.

Need a hand? We have volunteers!

Just ask. Let us know what kind of help your nonprofit, school, or civic group might need and we’ll see how we can work together. If your group is a nonprofit and based in a town Liberty Bank serves, we’ll be glad to make your volunteer opportunity known to our employees. Call us at 860-638-2961 and let us know:

  • Type of project or event
  • Time, date, location
  • Number of volunteers needed
  • Types of work you need performed

If you seek an individual to serve on your board or committee, or need the assistance of someone with particular skills, we’ll also be happy to seek a Liberty Bank resource for you.

Our Impact

We truly value our partnership with The Liberty Bank Foundation. Our mission is to build sustainable communities of hope and opportunity throughout all of Hartford and now Tolland County. And with our partners like The Liberty Bank Foundation, our four recently built “zero energy” homes will be the first of many in the years to come.
